Sedgwick, an American firm that offers technology-enabled risk, benefits and integrated business solutions, has wrapped up the previously announced takeover of York Risk Services Group.

Besides providing claims administration and managed care, the acquired entity offers specialised loss adjusting, pool administration as well as loss control solutions.

The deal was first announced in July this year. It is Sedgwick’s fourth acquisition of a third-party administrator (TPA) during the last five years.

Earlier Sedgwick snapped up purchased Nordic Loss Adjusting and related entities last month. In 2018, the company acquired Cunningham Lindsey and snapped up T&H Global Holdings in 2014.

The combined entities will have a workforce of approximately 27,000 employees operating across 65 countries.

Under the terms of the deal, Onex Corporation controlled entities will launch their equity into the combined business. As a minority investor, they will also join Sedgwick’s shareholder group.
